Ficus pumila (spp. white sunny)

Other common names: creeping fig, climbing fig.

It’s hard to believe that these little-leaved beauties are related to their more well-endowed cousins – F. elastica, F. robusta and F. benghalensis to name a few – but they are all part of the same species of flowering plant in the mulberry family, native to East Asia. The name comes from the Latin word pumilus - meaning dwarf - due to the small leaves of the plant. Like all ficus species they are good at cleansing airborne formaldehyde, xylene and toluene so make a healthy and beautiful addition to your home.

F. pumila is an evergreen self-clinging climber or trailer, with rich green, ovate leaves 2 - 5cm in length on climbing shoots, larger and narrower on non-climbing shoots. This can be grown outdoors as a climbing vine, however it does not tolerate very cold and freezing conditions so is better in this country as a houseplant. Outdoors in correct conditions it can grow purple fruits to 5cm in length, but it is unlikely to bear fruit indoors.

Approx size: 80 mm diameter pot x 100mm length
